In his best-selling book, Good to Great, Jim Collins stresses that leaders who begin with questions and are passionate about building the best product or service play a significant role in organizational success. Leadership is bringing veracity for quality through authentic debate to achieve extraordinary success.
It’s no surprise that the best teams also know how to fight. They develop a healthy and productive culture of debate that helps them build the best products and services. Unfortunately, 20 years of leadership research and assessments show executives often lack the desire and ability to deal with conflict productively. Further, leaders that fight to get their own ideas adopted cost their organization innovation and improvement.
Desperately Seeking Veracity ™ is a powerful training program that develops any leader’s ability to manage conflict, drive teams through difficult dialogue, build the best solutions to challenging issues, and launch teams on the path to prosperity. Mitchen’s active learning approach uses real conflict and group exercises to develop high performance leaders.
Veracity is essential for innovation, sustained team performance and retention. It is also a component for The Elusive Leadership™ system.
